Hotel Kruunupuisto
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Punkaharju
Reviewed 18 July 2013

Stayed there for two nights with the family. The room was nice but the athmosphere is more a hospital than a hotel. Would recommend to seek some other place in the area, which is obviously nice even for a Finn.

The hotel is situated on an interesting piece of land, surrounded by lakes, which is part of the long and narrow ridge of an ice-age moraine. There are pleasant walks in the surrounding grounds, where blueberries and lingon berries, as well as mushrooms, abound - but bring your anti-mosquito remedy if you come here in the summer! And bring a few good books to entertain yourself in the evenings.

This long-standing establishment is a former sanatorium, which has been transformed into a rehabilitation / convalescent centre, as well as an hotel. Some wings have been redecorated in their original art nouveau / art deco style, and the result is quite charming. The place is quite vast, and, as someone else pointed out, you may well get lost in the many corridors.

Be prepared for plain-ish food, uncommonly early meal-times (dinner, for example, is from around 16.30 to 18.30), and be prepared to encounter many people who are less fortunate than yourself, and who come to seek restorative care and convalesence.

Our room (we stayed only one night, on our way to somewhere else) was of the art deco epoque, had been sympathetically renovated, and the bathroom refitted in a modern way. However, the latter's lighting was totally inadequate for shaving or putting on make-up, and the magnifying mirror which might have helped was situated at waist-height, probably to be helpful to someone in a wheelchair. The narrow beds and their pillows were comfortable, and a small balcony looked over the gardens with a splendid view towards the lake.

In view of the very early dining hours at the hotel, we looked in nearby Punkaharju village for somewhere to eat rather later in the evening, but found that only two places were open in the late August period, one of which was a take-away pizza joint, and the other a bar serving a few simple dishes; we chose the latter, and were kindly, if not very promptly, served.

The building, Kruunupuisto, is actually a combination of rehabilitation centre and hotel as well as restaurant. This was my first experience to stay in this type of hotel building. The hotel guests will easily get lost their way back to their hotel room and enter the rehabilitation centre. The hotel is very clean and have a nice Nordic interior. The bed was good and the room was clean. The bathroom and toilet was clean and nice either. The floor of the toilet and bathroom is heated, thus, the hotel guests will not have their foot cold anytime they step into the restroom. I was checked in late to this hotel. Unfortunately, many leisure services are shut down after 20:30. Thus, cannot write much on the leisure facilities like swimming pool, spa, massage centre etc. The breakfast is included in the room rate. The breakfast is simple and standard. The taste of the breakfast was bit plain, perhaps, it because due to the rehabilitation centre? The scene around the hotel is beautiful especially in Summer. The sun only sets after 23:00 thus there is plenty of sunlight to enjoy the beauty of nature. However, remember to apply the mosquito repellent at this time of the year, June, when enjoying the nature outside the hotel.
